For those who are interested in Japanese gaming, Musou Orochi for the Japanese PS2 is out. It's from Koei and combines two of their biggest franchises-Shin-Sangoku Musou and Sengoku Musou (Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors in the US). This time they throw whatever pretense they usually have regarding actual history to the wind and have a wild Grade-B movie storyline. Evil creatures from Japanese mythology have invaded Japan and China across time and space, opening up a time vortex that gives the perfect excuse to have the 'Romance Of The Three Kingdoms' characters and the heroes of the Sengoku team up. It's a mess, but a glorious, entertaining mess. At least 77 playable characters, dozens of levels, and a few new twists to the game system (like being able to cycle through 3 different characters while playing a level). One thing about the game is that it is much, much harder than previous entries in other series. This is the final 'musou' game for PS2-all future entries will be on PS3.

Tatsunoshi,

Now, if they bring that to the US Playstation, I would probably get that. Totally pointless hack-n-slash. Smile

Man, another reason to get a Japanese system. I've just going to have to suck it up and blow some money on one sooner or later or I run the risk of accidentally dying somehow with a major regret. Shocked

You can count on it coming here. It reminds me of those old DC/Marvel mega-event crossovers of years past.
